Taking Yes for an Answer
Posted by Ilan Goldenberg

So last week John McCain was doing an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune Gazette and had this exchange.

Trib: Senator, with Iraqi leaders now calling for a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawals ...

McCain: Actually the Iraqis are not. The Iraqis widely reported as short a time ago as a couple of weeks ago that there would be no status of forces agreement, and Maliki would say that, and it got headlines, and of course it turned out not to be true.

Except ummm... Well it turns out that there will be no SOFA agreement.  So is it also possible that despite McCain's protestations that Iraqis really do want a timetable?  Sure looks that way

Although President Bush has repeatedly rejected calls for a troop withdrawal timeline, "we are talking about dates," acknowledged one U.S. official close to the negotiations. Iraqi political leaders "are all telling us the same thing. They need something like this in there. . . . Iraqis want to know that foreign troops are not going to be here forever."

Well if the Iraqis want timetables that's one thing but we shouldn't be the ones to do it. It's still a bad idea, yet if they demand it we must yield to their demands: it's their country.
